minutes that window was big enough and right in time for the shuttle to take off today. >> chad, same kind of rules apply, weather standards for the landing that's coming in 12 days? >> a little bit even -- i would say a little bit more conditional on the rain factor because it's a bigger circle. right now all we had to do was shoot this thing straight up. when we land this thing it has to be very dry. you can't have showers around it. think of a dry day in florida in the summertime. you have to go up edwards, one time to white sands but you cannot fly the shuttle because it's screaming hot. thousands of degrees, you can't bly that through a rain shower. the criteria more tense, harder to get through to land this thing back here at kennedy, but they have a big time -- they're going to have a big-time party when this thing finally does come back here. >> chad myers, appreciate that breakdown. good to see you, as always. thanks to our john zarrella. eight minutes past the hour. >>> sound effect is the u.s. labor market sputtering to a virtual standstill. as you know by now, the economy added
this isn't the end, this is the beginning of a new chapter, but the big question remains is what does the next chapter entail? talking up live here from the kennedy space center over the next couple of hours, a special guest including bob crippen, the first of two astronauts to fly up on sts 1 back in 1981. we'll talk to him of what happened then and what he thinks of this whole 30-year era and his thoughts on what's next. also, the man who built the engine of this current rocket, of the current space shuttle "atlantis," and he has some reservations about sort of the nebulous -- the nebulous outlook for manned space flight. a lot more coming at you. just heard the rain picking up again, and if we hear anything more about that possible lightning strike near that launchpad, which is just about three miles over my shoulder, we'll bring it to you live. edie, back knew you in atlanta. >> not what they want to hear or see out there. we'll join you again in a few minutes. >>> now a scandal that's worthy of tabloid headlines itself. journalists working for "news of the world," one of the bigg
of the need for a course correction. but weeks of negotiations have shown his commitment to big government is simply too great to lead to the kind of long-term reforms we need. >> reporter: reid says lawmakers must find a solution. >> we'll stay in session every day, saturday and sunday until congress passes legislation to prevent the united states from defaulting on negotiation. >> reporter: in chicago, key ally expressed support for the mcconnell-reid plan. >> more work to be done. joint committee can tackle it but it's responsible way out of the crisis. >> reporter: lindsey graham favors constitutional amendment but there isn't enough support in the senate. >> we have the people behind us. 72% of the american people want balanced budget. >> reporter: the president called for shared sacrifice. >> i am still pushing for to us achieve a big deal. but what i said to the group is if we can't do the biggest deal possible, then let's still be ambitious. let's still try to at least get a down payment on deficit reduction. >> reporter: but the cochair of the president's own deficit commission ha
of the substance of the proposal, it's too big. there is no time to get something this big done before the august 2 deadline. it literally cannot be passed through the senate in time even if everybody likes it. the other rainbow/sunshine problem here is the president and the senate agreeing on this or anything doesn't get you further towards raising the debt ceiling, it's not just the president and the senate, it's crazy town down the hallway too, it's john boehner's republican house, that likes the idea of the nation defaulting, that thinks the explosion of the economy might be pretty or at least warm for a second. they are not looking for a good deal or achieve particular policy objectives, regardless of what they get, they are not going to vote to raise the debt ceiling. the republicans who are running for president from the house of representatives, for example, are not saying don't raise the debt ceiling unless, don't raise the debt ceiling until, they are saying don't raise the debt ceiling at all. let's see what happens. this is how republican congresswoman michele bachmann's first president
says she manages the migraine with medication and is otherwise healthy. with all of that said, big news out of texas today, the gor rick perry who said he recently feels a calling to national politics has now gotten green light from key constituent, his wife. >> as my wife was talking to me and says get out of your comfort zone. yeah, being governor of texas is a great job. but sometimes you are called to step in to the fray. >> reporter: no word on a timetable yet. unclear whether perry will participate in the straw poll. his aides here tried to respect event facilities and were told they missed the deadline now they're pulling back resources. perhaps he won't participate the straw poll but there is a chance he could be on the debate stage a few days beforehand. >> bret: a lot of flirting he going on. thank you. we'll talk about it in the panel. the man charged with the 2009 fort hood shooting rampage major nidal hasan was arraigned today and faces 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. the prosecution is seeking the death penalty. we'll show y
days. 106 expected high temperature in the big "d." it will be 92 in kansas city and 80 in new york. that's cooler. 86 with storms in atlanta. some researchers out of the u.k. ali, want to share this story with you, you're a big movie buff and science guy at the same time, researchers out of the u.k. are calling for regulations to curb the integration of human genes basically with animal genes. they don't want to create a human animal, hybrid. who wants that? i can't help but think this has something to do with the release of the "planet of the apes" movie coming up in the beginning of august. called something like "rise of the apes." a popular show when i was a kid and i might see the movie in a couple weeks. >> do you know if we're anywhere down the road close to cloning human/animal cloning? >> we don't need a half man/half horse running around the office. we do use the genes for beneficial scientific uses to try to discover some cures of the diseases. >> it's always the fear someone will use it for the wrong thing. rob, good to see you. check in with you later on. rob marciano i
have a big jump in revenue. obama has been saying let's thai the bush tax cuts are going to lapse and we are going to extend the ones for the middle class. republicans are afraid to let him do that up front. it would kill momentum for a tax reform. >> but, but, but why just get rid of the bush tax cuts. if they are so awful, why not get rid of all of them. get rid of all of them for everybody. if tax cuts are the worst thing ever, the bush tax cuts, get rid of the bush tax cuts for everybody and raise billions in revenue. >> right. i think we could probably figure it out sitting around the table. i don't think it's that difficult. they are locked in in political terms. it's a much different issue to them. you can make rational compromises and deals here. the problem is, how do they do it. what's happening is they are at the point where they realize the consequences. at some point, they realize they have to do something other than hold the ground saying this is it. we're not going to change anything. we are at that point and we have little time to work with. >> howard dean, look wh
is anything more than a big wet kiss to the right wing, and -- and i mean the tea party. that's who i mean. it's too bad his caucus is being run by such a small number of people. >> what will happen between this very moment and a potential vote tomorrow is anyone's guess in the town that is washington, d.c. amid all the bickering and tinkering, the nation is just six days away from a first ever general default, and the treasury reiterating in a statement moments ago there is no guarantee the government can meet all its obligations after an august 2nd deadline, so what are the remaining options for our dysfunctional government? nbc's kristen welker is at the white house and let's also bring in luke russert on capitol hill. kristen, we know both sides are crafting their budget deals, both trying to take the high road, but are there any signs that the differences between the two sides are narrowing, and does it seem as though they may conflate these two plans? >> reporter: well, at this point we don't have any indication that they are going to conflate the two plans. we should say there are, of c
probing with the white house the possibility of a big deal that would be nearly $4 trillion in deficit reduction and include $800 billion in added tax revenues over the next ten years. if he goes this route, i am told he will face a revolt from his republicans on the house including his fellow leaders including kevin mccarthy, i'm told he is still considering it even though it's risky. >> treasury secretary tim geithner joins me now. he would have to manage the chaos if the united states defaults for the first time in history. secretary geithner, thank you for being here. well, you just heard what jonathan said about what'ss on the table. is it possible that there will be a framework deal in place by 4:00 p.m. this afternoon. >> i hope so. again, both leaders recognize they're running out of time. they need to get this process moving in the house by monday night to achieve that deadline. they need to have a framework that they know with complete confidence will pass both houses of congress and is acceptable to the president and that should happen today. >> you think it can happen befor
by suicide. let's talk about this change with chris lawrence. >> reporter: this is a fairly big change. even though, graptnted, only affect a small number of troops who commit suicide. still, ongoing fight in the military and outside the military among families to sort of destigmatize suicide. i think if you listen to the president's statement, that is exactly what this was designed to do. , to sort of, you know, put suicide in a different light. the interesting thing about it was the president had commissioned this review of this policy before making the decision. he said the review was exhaustive, it was tough. which suggests that in some level, there was, you know, some pushback and we look more into that throughout the day to find out exactly maybe where the pushback was and why the folks who didn't want this change, why they felt that way as well. >> as we know, suicide has become a really sad reality within these two wars. chris, thanks. >>> republicans in the nation's first primary state weighing in with their picks with the primary candidates. jim acosta is joining us with a new poll
a big quarter from team obama. fundraisers are predict they will bring in more than the record breaking that george bush raked in in 2003. the campaign tweeted add midnight, we're closing the books on the first chapter of the campaign with 493,697 donors. what does that mean? if he averages $200 a donor, he's going to be at awfully close to $100 million. obama did average $200 a donor the first two quarters as a candidate. campaign keeps pushing back on that. but do the math. in our look at all things independent. in battle ground states and emerging battleground states, the independent share of the voters equal to the two major parties or ahead, all courtesy of a book called how barack obama won, some guy here may have co-authored. in iowa and texas, 21%. in montana, 35%. 45% in new hampshire. bottom line is this, we know elections are won in the middle. wept strong for obama in '08. but the big question is there such a vacuum in the middle that somebody tries to fill it from the outside? we're going to talk about that later today. as bloomberg was first to reported, tim geithner has s
that she could catch fire. look, when you start this thing, when you win iowa, if you win iowa big, that thing starts rolling through new hampshire and south carolina, it's over in weeks. i agree 100%. >> how was she going in philadelphia suburbs? how is she going to do in the i-4 corridor and in wisconsin? how is she going to do in new mexico, arizona? i would suggest, with swing voters not well at all. >> there's no doubt if you nominate michele bachmann, it's an enormous risk. the only conditions, i think, under which i believe she could win the presidency, if people say, if they did in 1980, i don't care, i'm taking a chance with this guy because what we got we can't stand, you get 9% or 10% unemployment, two more years, this country is ready for a lot of change. more "morning joe" in a moment. with the hotels.com 48-hour sale, the possibilities are endless. interesting... save up to 50% this tuesday and wednesday only. hotels.com. be smart. book smart.  finally, there's a choice for my patients with an irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation, or afib, that's not cause
house back to the table, back to talking about something big. now, look, we still got a long ways to go. it's a weekend of sales jobs going on right now that actually began last night when the president had the congressional democratic leadership over to start talking turkey. so that brings us to the other sticking point, the actual substance. everybody has to figure out what to cut. this isn't going to be as easy as folks think and both sides are moving toward a deal that would include a trigger to assure mutually destructive politically when it comes to the two big items being kicked to committees or joint committees and that's still being figured out, tax and entitlements. one incentive plan would kill bush tax cuts for the rich and key portions of the new health care law if somehow the reforms for the tax code and social security and medicare weren't agreed to and implemented by january 1st, 2013. the question is, is the penalty on the bush tax cuts sort of the idea that you're kicking this down, is that going to be enough to assuage some democrats who believe there's too many cuts
and then this dip now? >> e.d., you talk to some analysts and they say, you know what, we had some really big shocks to the economy, to an economy that's already in trouble. first we had that ripple effect from the earthquake and tsunami in japan. that really hit manufacturers and automakers really hard and stopped production in its tracks. that's one effect and one reason we're seeing such low numbers. another reason, these higher oil prices we've been dealing with. they jacked up gas prices, so consumers pulled back on spending on other discretionary items. now, that doesn't help to give companies any extra confidence to hire when they see that nobody is, let's say, walking into their store to buy things. also these high oil prices cut into company's profit margins because for them it costs more to produce these products and distribute these products. these companies, you know, just overall, they aren't hiring. in the economy itself there is just a lot of uncertainty. if the economy would be on solid footing, then they'll hire but we're just not there. and of course amplifying this whole situation
here, right here. they will start working it. working it. take a piece how big they want it. they work it and work it until it cuts into the metal. whatever they get toothpaste and soap, mix it up and layer it. anytime you come in here, they can see this and cover it up. two pieces that were used, came from here. that's why they started doing this. this is contraband now. >> although level 6 is on lockdown, we're allowed to talk to one inmate about the toll the new restrictions are taking. >> i haven't been able to visit with my sister or mother because of this thing that happened in the separate housing unit. it was two other inmates, had nothing to do with me. so,itis not right. it's a nuisance. it's annoying because i don't behave in a way that merits my suspension of privileges, visits, or do a lot of other guys for that matter but yet we're being punished collectively. two weeks ago, they came and took away our nail clippers. we weren't allowed access except on sunday night. if we needed to cut our nails, the corrections officer would give them to us and then take them back. we we
chided leaders for missing a big opportunity. >> i think that any plan that simply says, you know, think about this later essentially, and we're going to try and figure out how things went wrong to blame it on the other party is a terrible mistake. we cannot go to august 2nd and tell the rest of the world because we're having this fight in our sandbox back here that we're going to essentially default on obligations of the united states for the first time in our history. that's a level of -- of immaturity that i don't believe this congress is up to. >> warren buffett was at the white house, and the white house talked to reporters this morning. david brooks calls out republican groups who he says decided not to seize the chance to usher in the largest cut in the size of government in american history. he also added, they do not see politics as the art of the possible. they do not believe in seizing opportunities to make steady, messy progress towards conservative goal. they believe if they can remain pure in their faith, some day their party will win a total and permanent victory over its
care a lot about. they have basically yielded to republicans on a big conceptual point. linking, lifting the debt ceiling to spending cuts and -- >> two things republicans still want. a dollar for dollar cut in spending to match a debt ceiling increase and a trigger mechanism for a balanced budget amendment. holding out ideologically. speaker boehner when asked about the reid plan earlier. let's listen. >> i believe that the plan is full of gimmicks. we're not making any real changes in the spending structure of our government, and it doesn't deal with the biggest drivers of our deficit and our debt, and that would be entitlement programs. >> the republicans-- >> they're not touching that either. putting it to the side now. >> how can he say that, then? >> they have forgotten the number one rule of hostagetaking. when the other sides gives into your demands you let the hostage go. i don't think they're interested in doing that. at least 100 members on the house republican side want to blow up the economy because they think they will save the economy. >> and they're certainly wil
-term deal. let's look for the big fix. the president says, luke, let's go for the big fix and now the republicans are going, wait a minute. what gives? luke. >> politics is the art of the possible. a lot of folks on capitol hill feel right now that a short-term solution is the only thing possible because of the eight-day time window that you mentioned. that being said, there are two very different plans which you talked about in the introduction which are going through capitol hill right now. speaker boehner plan is going to have an extension, which gets us through the wipter. i'm told that speaker boehner's going to brief his house republican conference at 2:00 p.m. about the details of that plan. won't get extremely specific. then for all intensive purposes it looks from discussions i've had with certain aides that you can see as early as wednesday a house of representatives votes on speaker boehner's plan. harry reid is going to go his own way with a $2.7 trillion reduction plan across the board. both of these contessa are different than any of the grand bargains. reid's extend
the big fight's going going to be over the debt ceiling limit. that's where the hard negotiations are going to be put out. and then they will probably be given a new number, and they'll have to revisit that bill that they've worked on in committee and meet the new number. so if that's what happens, it's probably a good thing. host: so first things first. guest: look, here's what each department or each function of government is going to be getting, and then work out what you think you can get, the most bang for the buck, so to speak. host: let's get to calls for you. we're going to begin with a call from los angeles. michelle is a democrat there. you're on for david keating of the club for growth. caller: given that you made the comments about t republican candidate mitt romney has developed an unshakable reputation as a flip-flop per uses federal powers to coerce taxpayers, and tim pawlenty is hard to pin down, who do you like? guest: well, what the club for we haveohas been doing, published a series of white papers on many of the presidential candidates, all of those that have d
do if they had a lot of time. they don't have a lot of time right now. >> that's the big question and the big factor at the center of all of this. they don't have a lot of time and they need to move both of these through both chambers of congress and somehow reconcile them, how they're going to do that. >> let me go back to the white house. it looks like these two plans, they're obviously a senate plan by majority leader harry reid and house plan by speaker john boehner. does the white house feel sidelined or left out of thf process? >> i had this question, too, and i talked with one official who said the president can't be sidelined. he is the president. he has the power of the veto pen. he's the one who says ultimately if something moves. although inthe thought is if he was given a plan that could get through congress, i think the thought is how could he do anything but sign it? but certainly the president and the white house have been very much in touch with senate democrats and the roll right now is that senate majority leader harry reid is pretty much the president's lifeline
in a picture-taking session before the meeting there was only small talk about the big sand storm in phoenix. colleagues say house speaker john boehner told us later there is an even chance there could be abagreement soon. >> there is substantial belief whatever is going to happen is likely to happen in the next few days. i for one spend wait and see what happens. >> senator blunt concedes that boehner is an optimist and the president admits both sides are far apart. there was ample evidence of that. reports that social security changes were discussed triggered complaint from democrats despite the white house assurance that benefits would not be cut. >> do not consider social security a piggy bank for getting tax cut to the wealthiest people in our country. >> republicans suggested tax savings should be used to other tax cut and not lower the deficit. some are reluctant to raise the debt ceiling. >> none of us want to raise the debt ceiling. up in of us think it's a good idea to spend money we don't have. it's a problem we have been doing it for so long. >> senator paul says the balanced bud
by your presentation of this award. it is a big surprise. but we should have known couple a months ago, you're getting pretty good at covert op stuff. >> that a reference to the president's decision to okay the covert mission that killed bin laden. gates a soviet affairs expert had a sense of humor, especially but about what he saw as the lack of hugh mimty in washington. >> he called it the last place in the world you could walk down lover lane holding your own hand. field hospitals in afghanistan. to improve survival chances for u.s. troops. gates is upset he's leaving the repeal of don't ask, don't tell to his successor but last not president obama says it's all but a done deal. >> in a matter of weeks, not months, i expect to certify the change in policy and end don't ask, don't tell. >> gates is still defense secretary until tomorrow morning when leon panetta is sworn in. at the pentagon, molly henneberg, fox news. >> bret: eric holder says a criminal investigation is looking into the deaths of two people who died in u.s. custody in iraq and afghanistan. a inquiry in c.i.a. interr
a picture for us about how a newspaper like news of the world goes about reporting on such a big story? what the level of the editor, deputy editor, senior reporters would be in putting together and overseeing the story? >> i think any big story. forrer the purpose of process most stories start out with the reporter. and that reporter may be being asked by the news editor to go and investigate a story or they may have brought information about a story from their own contacts to the news editor. it is at that stage in a newspaper where the reporter and news editor discuss the voracity of the information, go out and check the allegations, and come back with a more considered view. you can imagine that every newspaper gets a lot of information to the news desk and only percentage very small percentage makes it actually to publication. there are many layers from reporter to assistant news editor to news editor. finally this story will go to the back bench which will be the people that will oversee the stopping of that story and the subwill often talk to the reporter directly with questions and a
